Ask many interventionalists their notion of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and you may encounter perceptions of a hard-core basic science rat-and-test-tube research institute that has little to do with day-to-day interventional radiology (IR) clinical practice, patient-oriented IR clinical research, or education relevant to IR trainees. In fact, there are several opportunities for education, research, and training that are unique to the NIH intramural and extramural programs relevant to both academically oriented and private practice IRs, particularly for those with an interest in device development and clinical trial participation.
